I first met Don when he was a systems analyst at Nationwide insurance many years ago. There wasn't a project that he worked on that he didn't finally comprehend the result that was desired or to be explored , and always with a smile. A few years ago we were happily reunited playing duplicate bridge against each other. It's a small world. I am happy to call Don a friend Gary Blattner

Dave, I was shocked and saddened to hear of Don's death. I often think of the summer vacations we spent together at my home or yours, swimming, bowling, playing epic Monopoly games, or just hanging out and being goofy. Don was a good guy. I'm terribly sorry for your loss. Thanks for reaching out to let me know. Take care.

I worked with Dandy Don begining in the 70s and learned a lot about betting horses and the incompetence of NBA referees. Don was a good friend and a long time member of the Nationwide actuarial and systems communities. Always enjoyed sports discussions with Don despite rarely agreeing on what the expected outcome was going to be.

Don worked with me for years. Colorful guy that would do anything for his friends. I enjoyed Don whether we agreed or disagreed... I wanted to suggest that we get together did tell Don stories put nobody has that much time:sunglasses:! Glad he was in my life.

I was very sad to see this news. I worked with Don for many years at Nationwide. We shared a love of sports and attended several WVU football games together. He was one of the nicest people I have ever met. He will be missed.
